VOICES is a magazine made by volunteers from all Europe and hosted by “Volunteers Centre Skopje”. This organisation is a non-governmental youth organization created in 2005 by former EVS volunteers. The main goal of the organization is to give non-formal educational possibilities to the young people, in different fields, in local and international level; to promote the idea of volunteerism and to connect young people without reference to their nationality, religion, political, economical or social status. We are putting effort to develop a multicultural civil society, to reinforce the existing democratic structure, to enhance the affirmation of young people through their individual abilities and skills, and to connect the young people with the purpose of their closer cooperation.
Volunteer Centre Skopje has the role of an recognized and influential actor and partner in society that offers equal opportunities and approaches to improve the living standards of young people.
VCS Skopje is an active provider of information and opportunities for volunteering and non-formal education, both locally and internationally, and has taken an active role in bringing to the use of European funds and programs to youth and their involvement in decision-making and youth information.
